Together In Song
Together In Song
When we started, we had no idea whether this new idea would work, or even appeal to care homes and their residents…but we had our fingers crossed.
On Friday 20 April 2012 52 residents and 45 care staff from 9 care homes in Gloucestershire came together in The Chapter House, Gloucester Cathedral and we raised the roof.
‘Just a quick email to say thank you so much for a lovely afternoon. The residents who attended really enjoy the ‘Together in Song’ group. It was a lovely atmosphere and was organised really well.‘
Sarah Davis: Activities Coordinator – Amber Wood Care Home
We sang, we played instruments and wonderful voices rolled up to the rafters.
‘Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon. Our residents enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Please pass on our thanks to everyone – we had a wonderful time despite the rainfall on the way out!‘ Jaqui, on behalf of the Westbury Ladies and Gentlemen.
We now offer these sessions three times a year. In Gloucester, Cirencester and now Tewkesbury. If you would like to bring a group of your residents along for a ‘wonderful afternoon’, contact our administrator firstname.lastname@example.org
2016 dates: Fri 4 Oct (Cirencester Parish Church) Fri 14 Oct (Parish Hall, Tewkesbury Abbey)
2017 dates: Fri 28 April (Chapter House, Gloucester Cathedral)
A Wonderful Afternoon
Would you like to join us?
We sing together for an hour (or thereabouts) and then have a mug of tea and biscuits.
What you’ll need to know
You will need to book your places in advance as the venues we use have a maximum capacity.
We can generally arrange parking, so let us know if you are bringing your minibus.
There is level access to any venue we use, but in some venues there may be a short walk over uneven ground. It is wise to bring some extra wheelchairs with you to transfer residents who would find this difficult.
There will be a wheelchair accessible loo.
There is no audience.
We can provide a poster about the event for your notice board.
To keep this event going we ask for a small donation from each care home, we suggest £25 per home.
